Health & wellbeing, and embodied carbon

How does the Standard fair in the current political landscape? 

Going beyond energy-efficiency, join panel debates exploring evidence of health & wellbeing, and the amplified impact of embodied energy in low-energy buildings. The event will explore the latest keynote projects pushing Passivhaus frontiers. such as Bicester Business Centre & the University of Nottingham’s first Passivhaus - the RAD building.

Tips & Tricks from the Pros’ 

The event will get into the nitty gritty of Passivhaus detail & best practice with tech tasters delivered by Passivhaus Professionals. Learn tips and tricks on how to design out overheating, maintain quality assurance on site, and successfully delivering complex & large-scale schemes.

As expected, the programme will explore the latest Passivhaus good practice and research.  For those who are certified Passivhaus designers/consultants, the event will bolster your renewal points. The previous 1 day PHT Conferences have been accounted 8 points.



Social Housing Champions 

There are pockets of municipal Passivhaus champions, largely due to the commitment from select local authorities & housing associations who recognise the benefits of striving for low-carbon communities as a path to global sustainability. Expanding upon the Trust's Passivhaus Social campaign, a dedicated seminar stream will explore what is happening with current UK policy, financial frameworks, de-risking procurement routes and the options that have been tried and tested.

Chaired by Exeter City Council’s Emma Osmundsen, representatives from across England, Scotland & Wales will be sharing their secrets to success, and initiatives aiming at transforming the world’s built environment.

And remember that there are discounted rates for members to bring a client, so if there’s someone you’re trying to persuade to take the plunge, bring them along to be inspired! (Discount code sent in a September e-mailshot!)
